LoveReading View on Daddy Lost his Head

What would happen if someone really lost their head? This hilarious and surreal fable tells how one family patches things up and puts them back together again when their father loses his head.

Having searched high and low for the missing head but without any success, the family make daddy a nice new one. He can still do loads of the things he has always done and there are some advantages. The new daddy doesn’t snore and he doesn’t shout because he can’t see the stupid things the children are doing. And he can be tricked into unusually generous shopping.

But in the end none of the good things are enough. Luckily, daddy gets his own head back... Coupled with some absolutely superb illustrations from the pen of Quentin Blake, this book can’t fail to inspire children everywhere.

The Astrid Lindgren Memorial Award rewards the best in contemporary children's and young adult literature from all over the world. Quentin Blake was shortlisted for the 2010 award.

Daddy Lost his Head Synopsis

What would you do if your daddy lost his head? Make him a new one of course! All you need is some old newspapers, paint and a potato for his nose. It turns out there are lots of advantages to having a dad with no head: he doesn't shout or snore, he always agrees with you, and he loves doing the hoovering. But will Daddy ever find his real head?
